It's important to make sure motors can function properly, and electronic brakes are one method that keeps them working smoothly. The Solbrake, a DC Injection Brake by Solcon, is capable of bringing three-phase AC motors to a smooth stop through the controlled transmission of DC current into the motor’s windings. After the AC current has been cut off, the DC current injected into the motor’s windings builds up a stationary magnetic field that provides braking torque.
As cost-effective and time-saving devices, soft starters are essential pieces of equipment for motor control. Most are used in plants with older motors and fan or pump controls, but some applications can be unique to a specific problem.
Dubbed Solcon’s most advanced soft starter, the iStart is an advanced low voltage soft starter rated at 17–1100 Amps, 208–690 Volts. It is designed to provide optimal performance during motor starts and stops so that top-tier performance can be guaranteed for all connected appliances.
Solcon’s HRVS-DN is a high-end, heavy-duty, microprocessor controlled Medium Voltage Soft Starter designed for asynchronous and synchronous motors. The soft starter is optimal for applications that require fluid acceleration/deceleration and elimination of mechanical shocks.
The HRVS-DN has been designed to meet all relevant IEC standards, as well as regulations falling under ISO 9001:2000. The medium and low voltage compartments are completely isolated from each other, and each starter undergoes a partial discharge test as per EN 50178/625.1. Both starting/stopping characteristics are unique and can be supplemented with power factor contactors upstream to the contactor.
While the industrial world is making regular breakthroughs in the field of intelligence and automation, it still relies heavily on human workforce for day-to-day operations. Several repetitive tasks have already been delegated to robots, which come in a range of sizes, the larger greatly adding to the risk of injury in the workplace. It is therefore vital to have sufficient emergency controls throughout the plant floor to neutralize or minimize damage to human life.
Banner Engineering offers a number of stop devices with respect to this that can greatly reduce workplace accidents and ensure workers' peace of mind.
When it comes to industrial spaces, lighting is extremely important. Without the proper lighting, things like quality, safety, and visibility can decrease. LED lights offer an excellent source of bright illumination that’s easy to use and efficient without the dangers of mercury and heat.
Banner Engineering offers high-quality industrial LED lighting products that are designed to meet the strictest regulations while providing long-lasting illumination within industrial floors. Banner Engineering’s comprehensive portfolio covers almost every application one may encounter within the workplace.
Two hand controls are safeguarding devices that are used to keep the operator’s hands away from the point of operation. The modules deactivate as soon as the operator removes one or both hands from the mechanism, thus protecting the worker from injuries. This makes them an important piece of safety equipment on a plant floor.
Banner Engineering has a comprehensive offering of two hand safety modules and buttons, meeting the highest of standards while ensuring top-tier sturdiness and reliability.
Safety interlock switches can be used to control personnel access, shut off power, and prevent machines from starting when the position of a gate or mechanical shutter changes. These switches are perfect for protecting personnel and equipment that lie within hazardous areas, especially where high inertia rotating machines are involved.
As simple and nifty as they are, barcode readers play an essential and integral part within industrial automation. These electronic devices are heavily used for processes such as inventory management, and new advancements have given them capabilities such as ethernet communication, instilling in them, reiterated support for automation.
Banner Engineering offers a variety of senors and scanners for industrial purposes. Their advanced barcode readers are fit for use within industrial environments and capable of meeting heavy workloads.
Some industry applications are particular tricky, especially stable detection of uneven surfaces, clear objects, or liquids. Light-based sensors can fail to tell the difference between solids and liquids, thus making them unreliable. A better choice for these scenarios is an ultrasonic sensor, which is built for precise measurements between stationary and moving objects.
Banner Engineering understands the importance of being able to precisely measure between objects, and has created several lines of ultrasonic sensors just for that purpose. Each line of sensors fits unique situations so the right sensor can be chosen for the right task.
Slot sensors and part sensing arrays are highly resourceful and utilizable devices that can help industries keep up with their goals of automation. These optical slot sensors are characterized by their forked shape, and detect objects that pass between their two arms, with one being the emitter and the other the receiver. Part sensing arrays are characterized by two parts that work similar to a slot sensor without the fork-like shape.
Banner Engineering offers a durable and reliable range of slot sensors that can meet a dynamic range of requirements, while holding up in industrial environments.
